RATINGS

95Robert M. Parker Jr.

...beautiful, deep blueberry and blackcurrant fruit, licorice, creosote and subtle background oak. The wine has delicious up-front fruit, full body, low acidity and silky tannin.

93James Suckling

A soft and fruity young wine with currant and walnut character, a medium to full body and a savory finish.

REGION

United States, California, Napa Valley, St. Helena

St. Helena AVA is at the northern end of Napa Valley just north of Rutherford and south of Calistoga. It is a relatively warm climate thanks to the Mayacamas Mountains on its western edge, which protect it from Pacific Ocean fog. Out of the 9,000 acres in the appellation, some 1,500 are under vine. The principal grapes grown in St. Helena are the Bordeaux grapes of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. St. Helena is considered prime wine producing territory, and it was one of the first important wine producing regions in northern California. The legendary Charles Krug founded his winery just north of the town of St. Helena in 1873, and today the appellation is home to many prestigious producers, including Abreu, Grace Family and Spottswoode.
